When 21 years old, I first read the New Testament. I both loved the story and felt confused by it, for there were questions. I thrive on facts, people and place names, dates, and answers to the "why". The Gospels pay little attention to external trivia. They concentrate instead on the main topic: Jesus's teachings and how they can change our lives. They changed mine, and these messages keep me going as they renew themselves each day.
But the "why" remains with me still. God, Creator of the Cosmos, is a compassionate, forgiving, loving Father of All Souls who ever lived or will live. Likewise, Jesus, our Lord, is a compassionate, forgiving, loving companion who saves us from our sins through His teachings.
One "please forgive me," and God not only forgives us—we are told The One wipes our slate clean! One "forgive me, Lord" and Jesus says, "Go, and sin no more" and "forgive others as you seek forgiveness for yourself".
I believe these statements to be factual. Yet, they bring me to the Judas Iscariot "why". Why is there no mention of Judas's sorrow over his betrayal? No mention of his seeking forgiveness at the end of his life? Are we to understand that he never begged for forgiveness from the God to whom he prayed every day? Judas never cried out in prayer to Jesus, his friend who had shown him another way to live? Are we to believe that, for Judas Iscariot, there was no redemption—from the Cornerstones of our Faith who have given us the purest example of how to turn divine love into human love?
These questions drive me to know more about Judas's life and his times. Maybe this series will offer an answer.
I hope so, for questions drove me to earn a degree of Master in Theological Studies from the Virginia Theological Seminary. I live in Florida with my husband, Jack, who endorses this driving writing career. Luckily for me, Jack also serves as the listener to ideas and finder of terms.
Judas took five years of research and writing. Information from the end of BCE to the first century CE is overwhelming. Palestine's history is fascinating, complex, and often horrifying. Nevertheless, I am proud of this historical novel. My prayer is that this work is pleasing in the eyes of God and to my readers.
